2010 Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix

2009 saw Button and Barrichello finish the Gran Premio de España Telefónica in 1st and 2nd place.

Pit stop strategy played a big part in last years race outcome.

Hopefully this year the weather will be clear and the action fierce...no refueling should spice this race up!

No rush....there isn't much pictures or updates for such a long break....since most teams won't move into the circuit until monday or tuesday....

but there's plenty news tho....seems like Pirelli, Michelin, and Avon will announce they are interest for tyre suppliers

I can't wait either, and to top it off, I am movign across provinces that weekend, so I probably won't be watching live! I don't even know when I will get to watch! I am seriously considering altering my moving plans so that I can let that PVR run first thing sunday morning!

Anyways, I have to come out on this, I actually dreamed that Schumacher won this one!

This is Schumacher's Race to Win !!!

Schumacher has gotta redeem himself and dominate this race, I mean Mercedes GP is actually customizing and tuning the car just for him.

does anyone know what kind of 2 seater they were driving? The reports said it was an F1 car, but it didn't look like it (the nose), however, it may to allocate 2 sets of legs...
I was disappointed to see the bridge go, but it looks like there's a new one!

The "Bridge" is still there...its just the racing line for F1 diverted to the middle of the field....kinda like the Bahrain, but seems like the Silverstone has done a better job...as I see an obvious overtaking spot...

Now the cars will go under another bridge...

Schumi needs to finished at least in the top 5 this time. They re-designed the chassis just for him.
